Pain is there for a reason. It is there to tell you that something is wrong. If you ignore your pain and don’t get to the cause of it, your pain and the cause of the pain could get worse.
If you have pain in your back, shoulder or other areas, consider what could be the source of the pain. Speak to your GP about why you have the pain and develop a solution together to find the cause of the pain as well as treating the pain itself.
Consider seeing a Specialist to find out more information about your condition. Also consider having blood tests, urine tests, x-rays or MRIs to find out more about the cause of your pain. Discuss these tests with your GP or Specialist to find out more about your condition.
Talk to other people about the pain you are experiencing. They may have some ideas to its cause and how you can manage your pain effectively. Consider consulting alternative therapists such as Naturopaths, Chiropractors, Physiotherapists, Acupuncturists and other therapists. These alternative therapists like to understand the cause of your pain. Should you have any scans or findings from your GP or Specialist share your results with these therapists and they can find the best pain management strategies suitable for your condition.
Once you know the cause of your pain you are in a better position to treat your pain and get the best results.
